Sailing past the Rockland Breakwater
Exercises: tear triangles from a quarter sheet of paper. Position triangles in first window. Trace around triangles. Color in the background with a dark crayon. Recreate that dark background in next window by coloring in without outlining. New triangle arrangement in window 3, but go right to coloring in the background. Again, recreate this in window 4.
Final drawing: Continuous line drawing of the scene - use a dark crayon and make sure to start by drawing a border around your paper. Pull out the yellows and oranges from your crayon box. Blindly choose one crayon from this pool of yellows and oranges. Pool the greens. Blindly choose from the greens. Pool all colors back together. Blindly select your third color. Color your drawing using just those three chosen colors. Color as far away form normal coloration as you can.
At last, if you wish, do a continuous line drawing of the scene, and color as you wish!
